Dear Jim its the bottom end of the Dalston beat you want just above where the power lines go across the river. If you sit a few yards upstream of the big tree and trott the far bank under suitable conditions you should find some good roach. Both Lyndon Barrett and myself have had good sessions. I start off by putting in half a dozen lots of hemp and gentles at the head of the swim with a bait dropper then leave alone for an hour, just feeding five or six gentles every few minutes. I use a 15 foot rod, centre pin reel 3lb line with a float to take 5 egg shaped AA shot with a size 14 hook usually with three gentles. If the fish switch off, I then go over to stret pegging using flake as bait on a size 10 or 12 hook. I hope this is of help Regards Martin
